As I have said in my earlier post, Inai, these are the pictures of the Valaikaappu's kenduri which was held at my house on 31 January 2010. Nak tahu apa kejadahnya itu Valaikaappu ? Rujuk balik this entry.
Para tetamu waiting for the event to start.
My sister's mother-in-law & my grandmother starting up the event.
My sister's mother-in-law putting on the bangle on my sister's hand.
My grandmother putting on the bangle on my sister's hand.
There are actually three steps done during the Valaikaappu's ceremony.
Suapkan the paal soru.
Paal soru means 'milk rice' and is a traditional dish for festive or special occasions.
Pakaikan the bangles.
And . . . sapukan 'santhanam' on the face.
Please don't ask me why.
So yeah. That was just about what took place yesterday.
Fun, but tiring. For all of us in the family.
I snap-snapped lotsa pictures and xde orang nak snapkan my picture. So sad. Haha !
But . . . I sempat snap-gedix before the event started in my room. Wee~
Tu larh my dress for that special occasion. Haha.
Note : I now know the tujuan why they did this. Kononnya nak bagi the baby listen to the sound of the bangles. Mengarut bukan ?
